Northern Stage is seeking a DIRECTOR OF PARTICIPATION

Participation, learning and engagement have long been at the heart of Northern Stage’s work.  As we develop our business plan for the period 2018-2022 we are setting ourselves new and ambitious goals: reimagining how we work with disadvantaged and diverse communities; exploring innovative new models of creative and digital engagement; and investing in activity that expands our presence outside of our building.  We are seeking a passionate, effective and visionary Director of Participation to help us on our mission and drive impactful change.

The Director of Participation plays a key role in the strategic leadership of the organisation: you will be responsible for developing a clear and innovative strategy for creative learning and engagement that delivers to our vision, mission and business plan, and is fully integrated with our artistic programme.  You will develop a vibrant, high-quality programme that engages with a range of different communities and individuals across the region, with a particular focus on children and young people, and communities experiencing economic, social and educational disadvantage.  You will work closely with senior colleagues to ensure our work achieves visibility and profile, and attracts the level of support and resources required to realise our ambitions.

The successful candidate will be an inspirational and strategic leader with significant professional experience in the fields of creative learning, engagement and participation, and a passion for social justice.
